Some white people like to blame their own shortcomings on black stereotypes.
When a white cop unjustly kills a black person, the only thing you hear about is all the black person’s stereotypes to try to justify the killing, when there is no justification for that.
This is what George Karl is doing in his new book. Instead of taking ownership of the fact as a coach it is his job to get players to work to together, play harder and as a team, he just blames it on not having fathers around.
Karl wrote Anthony and Martin not having fathers in their lives became a detriment to their personalities.
“Kenyon and Carmelo carried two big burdens: all that money and no father to show them how to act like a man,” Karl wrote.
Here is how I know that Karl is just looking to pass the blame to anyone, but himself. JR Smith’s father has always been in his life, so you can’t say JR not having a father is the reason for some of his shortcomings, so what does Karl do?
He blames JR’s father.
Regarding Smith, Karl wrote that Smith’s father, Earl Sr., “urged his son to shoot the ball and keep shooting it from the very moment I put him in the game.’’
Is it “Oochie Wally Wally” or is it “One Mic”?
Is it “Black Girl Lost” or shorty owe you for ice?
Karl’s book at least to me, seems to be a way for him to excuse his failings as a coach, nothing more nothing less.
